High School: Christmas Social Is December 18!

November 9, 2021 Upper School News

Dear Students,

Christmas Social will be here before we know it! As you may already know, all ladies, including non-BLS guests, must have dress approval before the event. Please read through the following information as you make your plans.

Dress approvals will take place in the Boarding House 1A November 15 – November 18 and November 29 – December 3. Due to my schedule, I am available after school from 3:15 p.m. – 4 p.m. No appointment is necessary.

If your dress is not approved by December 3rd, a $10 fine per day will be issued and approval will need to be scheduled by appointment only after this date. Please note that I cannot approve a photo of your dress; I must see it in person.

If you need alterations and do not think they will be finished before December 3rd, you are required to bring the dress in for pre-approval. I may also ask to see the dress again for a final approval after alterations are completed. No fine will be assessed if you pre-approve. I understand that issues can happen; you must communicate those things with me before the deadline. Please note, shipping delays and online shopping disasters are not acceptable excuses for failure to meet the December 3rd deadline.

Attached to this email is a list of tips and a checklist to use as you shop. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.
